's strategic options in the region. "the washington post" writes president obama's decision to send his top diplomat on an emergency middle east peace making mission tuesday marked an administration shift to a more active vist role in the region's affairs and offered clues to how he may use the political elbow room afforded by a second term. beyond a cease-fire agreement, the president could try to throw his political clout behind a larger, long-term solution here. so far, no deal has materialized between israel and gaza. also, a bus bombing in tel aviv could push both sides further apart. 19 people were injured, three critically, in what was the first terror attack in israel in four years. police say, however, the incident was not a suicide bombing. joining me now, former assistant secretary of state, p.j. crowley and from tel aviv, nbc news correspondent stephanie gosk. thank you, both. stephanie, i want to start with you, is the attack we were just discussing in tel aviv an indication that cease-fire talks are not actually on track? >> no, that's not the case, ari. they aren't necessaril
washington university. former secretary for president obama. for more on israel's options let's go to former u.s. ambassador to morocco marc ginsberg. thank you for joining us. >> pleasure to be with you eliot. >> eliot: not a happy moment in the middle east. you have been a critic of u.s. policies thinking we've been too passive. is what we're seeing now an outgrowth of our being passive for too long a time and feuding forces explode in a moment when we don't want this to happen? >> the usual metaphor in the middle east if you don't stay on the bicycle and keep pedaling you fall off that's precisely what the problem has been with the active americans consistent and strategic diplomacy to try to break this logjam that exists that is in effect and powered hamas to take what essentially is now the primary role as p.j. crowley said away from the more secular palestinian authority which is high tailing it to the united nations to circumvent israel and not negotiate directly in order to get its own victory at the united natio

and international affairs. you may recall one of the debates romney went after obama saying that after the libyan incident you left washington and you went to nevada. that was for a fund-raiser. that's what they're doing and if you think of that many fund raisers, here's an interesting statistic for you. back in 1984, ronald reagan was incumbent president of the united states. he was running for reelection. his campaign had to raise money for the party even though he was taking the federal grant as everyone has until this year in the general election. ronald reagan attended in that year four fund raisers. >> compared to -- >> 221, so we have a president -- this is not an attack on obama. we have a president who is to some extent, not doing their job because they have to be off fund-raising. the romney people felt the same way. romney was heard to be complaining in his campaign that he couldn't go out and meet voters and do what he thought he had to do as a can at because he had to spend all of his time in closed rooms of wealthy people to fund raise in order to get his ads up for his campaign. he
obama is calling on congress to follow the example set by former u.s. senator warren rudman of new hampshire who called for bipartisanship during his time in washington. he passed away on monday from complications from lymphoma. he warned against large federal deficits and was a fierce critic of the reagan administration in the 1980s iran-contra affair. >> the american people have the constitutional right to be wr g wrong. and what ronald reagan thinks or what oliver north thinks or what i think or what anyone else thinks makes not a whip if the american people say enough. there comes a point that the views of the american people have to be heard. >> the new hampshire senator didn't seek re-election in 1992. later saying "i can see the republican party gradually being taken over by movement conservatives and self-commissioned christian soldiers whose social agenda i found repugnant." warren rudman was 80. >>> as the president considers his cabinet for a second term, the "wall street journal" reports eric holder will likely stay on, at least for the start of the new administration.

romney actually french kissed barack obama. >> well, social conservative bob vander plaats of "the family leader" told "the washington post," quote, the moderates have had their candidate in 2008 and they had their candidate in 2012, and they got crushed in both elections. new they tell us we have to keep moderating. if we do that, will we win? and tea party senator jim demint of south carolina had this to say about moderate senatorial candidates. quote, what i learned is the people who are still out there running on bold ideas, those conservatives won. in the case of rehberg, berg, and tommy thompson, having a moderate candidate does not win races for republicans. i want to start with you, matt, because you're on the right, and your sense of this election. was romney too moderate and too big tent and not fervent enough and not that much of a conviction politician or was he unable to reach all kinds of people that just didn't go for the conservative message? >> you know, if you look at this race, it wasn't so much conservative versus moderate. it was lacking a set of issues. you really st

government. as "the washington post" dana milbank put it in a recent column f obama were serious about being a good steward of the nation's finances, he would let them go. did you hear that? because many of those states are what dana milbank said are government takers, they take more in federal money than they pay in taxes. alabama gets $1.71 from the federal government for every $1 paid in taxes. louisiana gets $1.45 in federal aid for every $1 they pay in taxes. author of "bush's brain," and james braxton peterson associate professor of english at lehigh, and michael steele, former chair of the rnc and a political analyst here at msnbc. gentlemen, this is an extraordinary thing but let's talk about this, professor peterson, recent "daily b.a.s.e." article you talked about using maps in 1859 to america today where states are petitioning to seceed following obama's election. you write they were pro-slavery or open to slavery. this same collective of states were required to be racially segregated. it so happens these are the states that house the largest concentration of republican voters and

for the president and a large part of the reason was entitlements, 'cause the below 30,000, 63% vote for barak obama, gave him 7 million in plurality and he won by 3 1/2 million popular votes. when i pointed that out. the "washington post" editorial board attacked me. my question to you as a psychiatrist now, the facts are on my side. i proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt using the facts. the exit polling, and all of the facts that we presented last night and tonight. why are they attacking me so vehemently? what is wrong with telling the american people what's going on? >> well, look, the fact is democrats did get their demographic, but that doesn't prove that they got the demographic because they're getting more stuff. i think traditionally democrats have been getting their demographic for a very long time. that skew in social class is to who gets the vote, democrat or republican, has been around for a long time. i think it's a plausible theory. i don't think it's a proven fact. and i don't think as some people have implied, that it's racist simply because the european state, which is the m
